FALL 
ORIENTATION 

Life has often been likened to a road which we travel of a race we run. On 
the way through it we go up and down hills, through valleys, over barriers 
and hopefully we reach some high points during our journey from which 
we can marvel at our accomplishments. 

Our time at Mount Wachusett Community College is a small part of our 
trips but it is an important part because it is here that we decide the course 
of our lives. Whether it is decisions about work, travel or lifestyle, they 
are all detours and turns on our road to the future. 




As we are faced with these choices we 
can also feel the urge to put on someone 
else's SHOES and follow the FOOT- 
STEPS of those before us in our search 
for happiness. There are many pairs of 
shoes, well and broken in for us to try on 
— those of teachers, friends and celebri- 
ties — and while it might be easier to 
wear someone else's SHOES who has 
walked before us and suceeded, it is also 
important to put on our SHOES and cre- 
ate new roads to follow. 

So, while we can follow someone else's 
FOOTSTEPS, it is also important to 
make our own to achieve happiness.

SHOES. Everybody wears them. In the be- 
ginning of time they were just a covering 
to keep feet protected from weather condi- 
tions. Through time shoes have become 
more than that. They have emerged as a 
fashion accesory and a clue to a person's 
personality. It is true that you cannot put 
the same SHOE on every foot. 

Through the halls of the Mount, varieties 
of SHOES can be seen. They range from 
high fashion pumps to old torn sneakers. 

Looking under the desks of busy students, 
one can see all types of styles ----- 
sneakers, sandals, mocassions, boots, loaf- 
ers, clogs, work boots, short boots, high 
heels, buttoned, buckled, tied, and 
flourescent colored . . . the possibilities are 
endless. 

SHOES are an extension of our personal- 
ities. A persons SHOES tell us whether 
they would rather be fashionable or com- 
fortable. People may own a few pairs or 
may own many pairs of SHOES. Shoes 
can make or break an outfit. It all depends 
on how you wear them. Certainly, the va- 
riety of SHOES at the Mount had made 
walking through the corriders just a little 
more interesting.

Two prominent actors died in late 1985: Orson Wells, 70, of a 
heart attack; Rock Hudson, 59, after a battle with AIDS. 

A delta Airlines jetliner crashed near Dallas in August, killing 
137 people. The plane was on a flight from Fort Lauderdale, 
Florida to Los Angeles with an intermediate stop at Dallas-Fort 
Worth. Thirty-four people survived the crash but five died of 
injuries later. The plane encountered a severe wind shear as it 
plunged to the ground. 

Blue-collar troubadour Bruce Springsteen was the undisputed 
Boss of rock n' roll. His songs about Vietnam veterans, 
steelworkers and factory workers hit many responsive chords 
with all ages of Americans. 

Ceremonies were held at various times during the year at the 
Vietnam Memorial in Washington to commemorate the tenth 
anniversary of the fall of the Saigon government in Vietnam. 
The Vietnam Memorial is inscribed with the names of more than 
58,000 dead or missing soldiers from the Vietnam war. 

Riots were an almost daily occurence in South Africa as blacks 
protested Apartheid. In this photo, a white man runs from 
jeering group of stonethrowing blacks in downtown 
Johannesburg as windspread violence continued to breakout 
throughout the country.

President Reagan, with his wife Nancy, gives the A- 
Okay sign from his hospital window in July after 
undergoing surgery to remove a cancerous tumor from 
his lower intestine. The 74-year old president was back 
on the job within weeks after the operation. 

Cincinatti Reds player-manager Peter Rose broke Ty 
Cobb's career hit record in September. The historic No. 
4, 192 hit was a single to left field on a 2-1 pitch from 
San Diego Padres righ hander Eric Show with one out 
in the bottom of the first inning. 

A high school teacher goes into space. Christa 
McAuliffe folds her training uniform as she packed for 
a trip to Houston where she began training for her trip 
into space. McAuliffe is a high school teacher from 
Concord High School in Concord, N.H. Her flight is 
scheduled for January, 1986. 



A series of devastating earthquakes 
rumbled through Mexico City in 
September and the death toll was in the 
thousands. Few in the metropolitan area 
of 18 million escaped the effects of the 
first quake, which registered 8.1 on the 
Richter scale; or the second quake, which 
measured 7.5. 

A Trans World Airlines jet with 145 
passanger and eight crew members was 
hijacked in Athens, Greece, in June. The 
Shiete hijackers took the plane to Beirut, 
then to Algeria and the back to Beirut. 
Most of the hostages were released within 
days but the remaining 39 hostages were 
held for 17 days. One American hostage 
was killed.

Remember Hurrican Gloria?! She stepped in to town the 
night of our class mixer and postponed the first social 
event of the semester. One month later, at the Monoos- 
nock Country Club, on November 1st, we finally got a 
chance to get our student body together for fun and 
dancing. The turn out was tremendous. We danced and 
partied to the tunes of D.J. Burke

Edwin C. Dunton III 



IT IS WITH GREAT SORROW AND A DEEP SENSE OF LOSS THAT 
WE MOURN THE PASSING OF THREE MOUNT STUDENTS AND 
A FORMER FACULTY MEMBER THIS YEAR. THEY WILL BE SAD- 
LY MISSED. 

Edwin C. Dunton III graduated in the Spring of 1985. Ed was a member 
of the Student Senate, serving as President for one year. President of the 
Ski Club, member of Who's Who in American Junior Colleges. Ed was 
also co-recipient of the Dean's Keys presented at graduation. 

Brian Lancaster was a sophmore at MWCC. He was active for three 
semesters in both the Ski and Scuba clubs. He was a certified life guard 
and work in that capacity at the Mount. He was elected to the student 
Senats last spring and played and active role on the 1985 Spree Day 
Committee. 

Robert D. Weibell was a second year Art student at the Mount and was 
a member of the Art Club. 

Aspasio K. Anastos was a professor in the Humanitities Division at 
MWCC fro many years and was loved by all. 

Scholarships have been established as memorials to these fine people: 

DUNTON-LANCASTER SCHOLARSHIP 

ROBERT D. WEIBELL MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP 

ASP ASIA K. ANASTOS MEMORIAL SCHOLARSHIP 



Brian Lancaster 




Robert D. Weibell 





Aspasio K. Anastos 



It has been said that death comes like a thief in the night, and that we come into this world with nothing and we 
leave with nothing. 

And yet, is it really so? For we leave behind us a legacy of ourselves. We leave to our loved ones, our family and 
friends, the memories of times gone by, that live like love, forever! 

We know all to well that once the physical presence of our departed is no longer with us we do not forge them, 
and that always thoughts come to us and we can and do remember, as sure as we know that spring follows 
winter. 

The parting of death is natures greatest show for it seems so final, but once we have walked amongst men and 
have spoken and laughed, and loved with them, can all the be fogotten in an instant? 

Not so, for as long as you are alive so does your loved one live within your memory. You need only recall at any 
time and know and gain from within yourself that inner strength of knowledge, that like this world and all in it, 
life and death are facts. 

But are we not by dying truly born again? Words are difficult and cannot express the feelings of separation and 
loss. But let us take comfort in the thought that our loved ones would not want us to be saddened or be the cause 
of our grief. 

Let us therefore hope that they have gone from our presence into a better world not so far away from us. 

Rev. Joe Crinitia 
Montreal, Canada

THE BEST 

CLUB 

OF THE YEAR! 

INTERESTING EXPERIENCES FROM 
THE SKI CLUB. 

January 12-17, forty-one ski club mem- 
bers, friends and family, rocked the pad 
in Lincoln, N.H. We have decided to 
share some memories of the trip with 
you: 

Heidi slept late. Rick falls down (in the 
lift line). The Pats "squish the fish." 
Friendly N.H. service — just ask Geoff! 
Dancing age in N.H. is 21!? Geoff eats 
bark; trees are Hell. Laying out 100 
sheets for the pad. Wayne gets sick at 
Indian Head (on Carol's coat). The BIG 
"O"!! The famous head butt. "Hey, there 
is slime in the Jacuzzi." "Cathy, look out 
for lobster wings!" Rick's surprise birth- 
day party. The four people pyramid in 
the pool. Ski "93" mugs .... where did 
they all go? Twenty-three degrees below 
zero — brrrrrrrr. "No juice, man." "John, 
leave those lift towers alone." Warren 
Miller ski films. Mmmmm — Swiss choc- 
olate. The lip-sync contest was a success. 
We all had a blast. Everyone dances to 
"Shout". Imported Marcela twists her 
ankle. Boy, no one drank on this trip. 
Two bells .... we're gone. It's a bummer 
coming home. 

For those of you who read this and are 
totally confused, there's always next trip. 
Oh yes, one more thing, "Don't forget to 
tip your bartenders and waitresses."

AWESOME 

BIG O 

REMEMBER 

WHEN: 

SKI CLUB GOES TO QUEBEC 
Bonjour! During Spring break our 
famous bunch of rowdies from the 
MWCC Ski Club went on a skiing 
excursion to Mount Saint Anne. At 
6:30 AM thirteen of us left the 
MWCC parking lot en route to 
Canada with our birth certificates 
in hand. Here are a few experiences 
we brought back with us: 

Bla, bla, bla, bla! "Do you have frog 
legs? Well, hop over here and take 
our order." .... Everyone learns the 
French language (well, at least a few 
words) .... Ann, leave that cruiser 
alone! . . . MMM! Poutine! (french 
fries, cheese and gravy) .... Walk- 
ing miles to find a night club . . . Le 
wet t-shirt contest .... Mademoi- 
selle Suzie, le sexual . . . Mademoi- 
selle Ginger! .... Rick went over 
the mountain, to see what he could 
see .... A safety message from 
Laura: "Don't ski closed trails!" . . . 
. BUMPS! Warp speed on Ca- 
nadian highways .... NO MORE 
MTV, NO MORE TWISTED SIS- 
TER! .... Life in a Coke can! .... 
Catch the wave .... Long CB talks . 
. . . Hey, Larry, did Mom get the bill 
yet? .... Pete's birthday party . . . 
Le Concord with rotating lounge . . 
. . I think I'm going to be sick .... 
Ryan, stay away from those young 
girls at Le Bistro! .... Hey, look out 
for those carrot-top head butts .... 
Gas only 50 cents (a quart) .... 
Eating Italian, Chinese, and Ameri- 
can food .... Where's the French 
food? .... $5.00 for a White Rus- 
sian, $2.50 for a Coke What a 
bargain! 

Well, until next time, this is Cap- 
tain Spock signing off! Au revoir!

The 10th Annual Activities Awards Banquet was held at 
the Elks Clubhouse in Leominster on Friday, April 25th. 
Chairperson Cathy Cormier, who headed the Banquet 
Committee, spent long, hard hours arranging all the de- 
tails that ranged form the meal itself to flowers on the 
head table. 

Wendy Boucher, Marylou Collins, Lisa Hales, and Dawn 
Hefflefinger along with Susan Hitchcock-/Gale, Thomas 
Horgan, Gloria LaBrack Sarah Salter and Carol Seiden- 
berg assisted Cathy with the tedious details as the eve- 
ning came across a complete success. Stuffed Boneless 
Breast of Chicken topped the menu follwed by the ususal 
pototoe, vegetable, and dinner rolls. It was a great meal, 
catered by Cormier, but the reason for this festive gather- 
ing was soon approaching. 

Shortly after the dessert was served, Jim LeBlanc, the 
Master of Cermonies, and Rhonda LaPointe, the Mistress 
of ceremonis, were calling for order as the process of the 
awards presentation began. The Athletic Awards, pre- 
sented by Nola Sapienza, were the first to be honored, 
followed by twenty one of the Mount's finest clubs and 
organizations. 

The strings were tuned and the amps were warmed as 
"alias", a fine band, readied themselves for an evening of 
music and dance. Those choosing to ramain after the 
awards presentation "let their hair down" and boogied to 
their hearts content. 

The evening concluded with a last dance followed by 
thunderous applause. Applause for the band, Applause f 
for the Banquet. And Applause for the brotherhood.

Bag Pipers played as they led the processional of graduates 
dowt the aisle. Student Marshall, Donna Plourde along with 
the Class of "86 vice president Carol Seidenberg, ushered 
the graduates to their seats. John Awdycki, faculty marshall, 
headed his peers as 3500 in attendance looked on to witness 
over 400 excited graduates. 






The graduates of Mount Wachusett Community College 
were reminded that not only did their own perseverance get 
them through the two-year program, but that the support of 
their families and friends were also important. Astronaut 
Byron K. Lichtenberg encouraged the graduates to "Dare to 
Dream". Christopher Columbus crossed an ocean of wate, 
and today we stand at an "ocean of space" that awaits 
exploration. You'll be surprises what you can do if you reach 
a little bit," he said. 

Lichtenberg offered the graduates what he said was a three 
part formula for success. 

First, set long term goals. "What's really important is to do 
what you want to do." 

Second, break up the goal-bound path into small managable 
peices, resulting in one small success after another. 

Finally you have to get to work, and that can take sacrifice 
and perserverance. You need faith and confidence in your- 
self, but you also need support from the outside.
